Destination Gettysburg is a nonprofit organization established to stimulate the local economy through tourism, the region’s top industry. Essentially, Destination Gettysburg markets Gettysburg and Adams County to potential travelers. Many of the area’s visitors use information to plan their trips from such sources as the Visitors Guide and Destination Gettysburg’s website, www.DestinationGettysburg.com.
Destination Gettysburg and its 250-plus members work together to attract travelers and keep them coming back again. Fortunately, Gettysburg experiences a very high level of repeat visitation, those who come back often and relive old traditions and create new memories. As part of this marketing effort, Destination Gettysburg uses new products – whether it’s attractions, restaurants, or lodging – to expand the length of a visitor’s stay.
The organization also markets the destination to travel groups and meetings and conventions. Gettysburg is among the top destinations for group travel, behind only New York, Washington, Nashville and Branson, Mo. Gettysburg’s hotels have excellent banquet and meeting space for businesses to host meetings and conferences.
Once visitors arrive to Gettysburg and Adams County, Destination Gettysburg provides visitor information services at two locations – at the Gettysburg National Military Park Museum and Visitor Center and its administration office at 571 West Middle Street.
